Revealing mistake: In the scene when Johnny realises his keys are locked in his car and goes to kick the pole out of the ground there is a light on top of the pole. Where are the wires for the light?

Audio problem: In the scene where Penny and Johnny are teaching Baby their dance routine you see Penny putting on a record, if you look closely you can see that Penny moves the arm to put the record on then right away you see her taking the arm away even though the music has started. Even if it's a directorial device for us to hear different music than they do, it's still a mistake because she's not actually put the record on, meaning they've not got any music playing.
